Another Life - In The Ring

There’s a big boxing match this weekend. The undefeated welterweight Floyd Mayweather squares off against the champion Shane Mosley. Marc Lichtenfeld will be among the millions tuned into that fight, but he’ll be watching the drama before and after the fight as much as what goes on between the bells. That’s because Marc’s a boxing announcer - the guy who stands in the middle of the ring and amps up the crowd. Marc talks with Dick Gordon about how he balances his day job in finance with his night job in the ring.


Mike Sacks is a third-year law student at Georgetown University in D.C. During his years in school, Mike has spent many nights on the sidewalk, in front of the Supreme Court. Mike writes a blog about being the first one in line to hear the Court’s oral arguments. Often this involves sleeping bags, snacks and most of all, patience. Mike talks to Dick about what it’s like feeling so connected to the Court, his interactions with others in line, and even with some of the justices themselves.
